Grayson Perry's A House for Essex Wrabness on the south bank of the river Stour is Essex if only just.  From there you can see Grayson Perry's A House for Essex against the cranes of Felixstowe port.  From what we can make out Perry doesn't actually own the house ... can't say we're smitten.

Anorak Alert 20:  It would be more informative and informed BBC tv news to report Cavendish is in the green jersey not Cavendish is dressed in green, it's a bike race not a fashion show.

Romeo and Juliet in StowmarketLast night's thunderstorm wasn't that much in Stowmarket and hardly hindered the Keeper's Daughter's dress rehearsal of their promenade Romeo and Juliet in and around the John Peel Centre.  The show goes on the road tonight starting in Lowestoft and is a very different way of telling a 400+ year old story.

Tuesday night in Lowestoft the attempted and violent mugging by three young men of a woman in a wheelchair ... nothing to say.

Saturday in Ipswich despite losing Inky Minx to the London Roller Girls this year Rebellion Roller Derby had a comfortable 282-93 win against a not a pushover Vendetta Vixens plus they made the team photo of the year.  Creepy?  Oh yes, they can do creepy.

BSA light car in FramlinghamLast week by Andy Tiernan's Framlingham we saw this 1930s BSA three wheel light car on a trailer with the very appropriate number plate.  The BSA number had belonged to the factory but Andy scored the plate from a London antique dealer about to retire.  We were a bit confused by the lack of brakes on the BSA's front wheels but Andy explained the brake was a rod operated drum brake mounted inboard on the diff.

 JOB  Estate agency branch manager wanted in Framlingham, well that's got to be William H Brown.

This evening we were on a Diss bench eating cod and chips (a little oily but ok) and looking at Fair Green.  We could hear but not see children playing in a garden.  Every so often the top two thirds of a young girl would appear above the fence before disappearing as she jumped.  Before one jump we swear she said One small step for me, one giant leap for girlkind.
